Peg tube removal

  1. Default Peg tube removal

    Can anyone help clarify. Can you bill the new CPT CODE 43762 in the office if you are just removing the peg tube? Or do you just bill an e/m code? Any input on this new code is appreciated

    The new G-tube codes are for replacement only. If the physician removes the G-tube you would code an appropriate E&M service.
